Description

Do you want to be a great football player? Or are you happy just to support your local team? Either way, this is the perfect book. Explore the history of football, find out which are the greatest teams - and who are the greatest players. Then try the Football Quiz to see how much you know. Then read a story about the greatest footballer ever (or is he?). It's 'Rob of the Rovers'.

This fantastic book features an exciting combination of both fiction and non-fiction. The non-fiction section enables readers to engage with the subject matter, using dramatic illustrations and bite-sized texts. The beautifully illustrated fiction story appears in two formats - short, simple texts for more able readers and an illustrated 'speech bubble' version of the same story, for those who are really struggling. Part of the Trailblazers series, this book is brilliant for keeping reluctant readers engaged.

Reviews

"They are strong and colourful, with layouts that leap off the page and draw the reluctant reader in. Each page is a new layout, a new set of colours, a new experience; just perfect for those readers with very low attention spans." - ABC Magazine - Sussex, Summer 2006.
"The fiction section contains two versions of the story: the 'full text' version on the left hand page, plus a 'speech bubble' version on the illustrations on the facing page, which is ideal for very poor readers. The two levels of story text are also great for 'buddy readers'." - Junior Education, June 2006.
